I have been taking progesterone cream,taking breaks during my period since Dec of 2015 due to estrogen dominance. I started with 40mg/day half in the am and half in pm. Some of my symptoms were fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, GI upset, headaches, cramping.. I have noticed improvement when I'm on the cream, but have difficulty when I stop during my period and the difficult symptoms each month when adding progesterone back in. I increased my dose to 60mg/ day last month. This month, July 2016, my period came on day 17 (usually I wouldn't start till day 24). This has never happened before. I thought I was spotting (which has never happened before either), but it is actually my period. My Dr advised me to increase to 80mg/day for 4-5 days and then return to 60mg/day dose until day 24 then stop. I'm wondering what your take is. Any insight and advice is welcome!
Thank you!
